Verified I have proper control movements for testing the AP this weekend. Weather looks like poo here in VA for Sat and Sun so I will wait until Monday to give her a test.

Just tested the FY-DOS and i'd have to say it performed very well. Heading hold worked as advertised.

AHI?

I tested it with the GPS and it loitered/circled and returned to home fine. What i wanted to test was the heading hold and altitude hold. It worked fine and held the course. Very neat feature that the FY30 does not have.

The only downside to the FY-DOS is the fact that you need a computer to make changes in it's settings such as gain etc.

Pretty happy and the strange thing is it's cheaper than the FY30.... not so sure why.

Nope. Not a fan of it honestly as it gets in the way. I fly with way points and often toggle in the menu to access/change settings. The RVOSDV5 has a nice layout with its AHI however.

Tried it with my fy30 and did not like it.

Question about the external barometer on the Dragon OSD


Lately my external barometer has been giving all kinds of weird readings thorough the flight. Like mid flight I'll be at 200ft then all of a sudden it will go to 0 and land at -200ft and other different things. And at th eend of a flight it will say max altitude was 4,000ft when I only went a few hundred and I'm at 2k MSL

If I remove it I'll still get altitude in the display from the GPS right?

FPV test almost 3,000ft out (3 min 32 sec)

Yes the GPS will provide the altitude.

You might be having a problem with the barometer due to the air flow through the plane. Try wrapping a small pieces of foam around the barometer and put in a spot with the least amount of air flow. They can be sensitive to moving air.

Ok, thanks. I'll try that.
I had it mounted inside my quad frame, then I put it out onto the bottom on the quad to see if it made it better. obviously it did not make it better. I'll see how putting it in foam does thank you very much.

i love you DragonOSD. Paired with the FY-DOS or FY30 it's an unbelievable OSD.

Yes. Use a bigger monitor. No help with goggles though.

Some baro sensors are sensitive to light. Make sure it doesn't get direct sunlight.
